DIY Skin Toner with Myrrh

The Ancient Egyptians and Arabian cultures knew the value of myrrh. They applied it to skin issues, like acne and aging, though they may not have known that the oil possesses astringent, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties, they did know that its effects produced radiant and healthier-looking skin.

The aroma was also uplifting and restorative, as the oils trigger support in several brain regions – all of which regulate emotional balance. With these topical properties and this aromatic impact, a solo myrrh essential oil application benefits skin and emotional conditions, but when blended with other synergistic oils – like patchouli, lavender, lemongrass, and helichrysum – you have yourself a powerful skin-supporting product.

This Supportive Skin Toner combines all of these skin-supportive oils into a blend that firms your skin and smooths its tone, making it radiant and glowing all over. Follow the below protocol for healthier, younger-looking skin.
